The Portugal answer is wrong I think. The Crown of Portugal was united with Spain from 1580 to 1640. The 'Spanish' Armada set sail from Lisbon and included Portuguese ships.

The countries remained separate even if the king was the same.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iberian_Union

"The Habsburg king was the only element that connected the multiple kingdoms and territories, ruling by six separate government councils of Castile, Aragon, Portugal, Italy, Flanders, and the Indies."

As far as I know, the question is correct, as confirmed by England's famously long-lasting alliance with Portugal. The question will stand unless better evidence is provided.

Yes, the fact that they remained separate countries is rather the point. If Portugal had been absorbed into Spain the given answer would be right. Since it did remain separate and contributed a significant squadron to the Spanish Armada which sailed against Elizabeth I's England in 1588, I'd have said they were at war. It would be certainly be an unusual step to take as part of an alliance, no?

Yes, I can see your point. I changed that question to something about Spain.

"for the sake of brevity"? Or just making the quiz future-proof? ;)

For the sake of brevity. In the English language, it is very awkward to collectively refer to a group where part of the group is past tense and the other part is present tense. We need tense-neutral verbs!!!

Maybe clarify question 3 to say Queen of the whole of Ireland?

Queen Elizabeth II's full title is "Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of her other realms and territories Queen", so it could be argued that she is Queen of (part of) Ireland (though not all of Ireland).

I thought I was going crazy after getting the state/province one wrong until I remembered that Liz the First was known as the Virgin Queen, hence Virginia.

It would be nice if the questions showed additional factoids after the quiz was over to contextualise the answers. Moar learning! :D
